Club winter league match tomorrow, fished the venue on Wednesday and broke the ice and had a decent day catching roach, skimmers and odd stockie carp clicked 72 fish. Pinkie over a small nugget of groundbait or 2mm expander over a few micros bought bites most of the day. Hopefully all the colour hasn't dropped out the place in the past few days but breaking kit packed in the car just in case it has a lid on but warmer night around here tonight so we will see. Love winter fishing and makes you think things through more and rewarding if you get it right.
I’ve been quite lucky over the years as when we have had to cancel on a lake / pond we’ve been able to move the match onto a river. Even if it’s only ended up a knockup as there’s always a few anglers drop out. So Whisker mate, what’s it gonna be ………. pleasure fishing, hook & rig tying or taking the missus out for the day ?
I’ve been away all week and dread the Mrs saying “let’s go out for the day” on a weekend
Hook tying I’m saving for evenings stuck in hotels. I’ve got some paperwork to catch up on tomorrow (not quite as exciting as catching fish) but opportunity in the week to get out on the bank
